April 16, 2012, is the 3rd annual worldwide celebration of foursquare Day and Atlanta is participating. Several metro-area businesses are offering unique check-in specials just for 4sqDay and no celebration would be complete without a party!
When & Where: Monday 4/16, from 5:30 – 7:30pm at SweetWater Brewery – 195 Ottley Drive NE, Atlanta, GA. Map. Parking is free along Ottley Dr and in designated lots. We are taking over the brewery for a private party just for 4sqDay! Entry to the event is $10 and you can pay at the brewery. We are pre-selling up to 150 tickets before the event through Xorbia which gets you access to some cool schwag. Details below in ‘Giveaways’. The event is 21 and up only.
Food & Drink: Delicious SweetWater brew will be flowing with plenty of SweetWater sampling. The Atlanta Street Food Coalition arranged to have two food trucks: Buen Provecho and the WOW! Food Truck. King of Pops will also be there selling their amazing popsicles!
Giveaways: The first 150 people to pre-order tickets to the event will be guaranteed a limited-edition 2012 Atlanta 4sqday t-shirt, pint glass, and koozie (must pick up items at the event). There will be pint glasses and koozies available for walk up ticket purchases (while supplies last), but the free t-shirt will only be given for tickets purchased in advance. All of the sponsors will have tables set up at the event and will be giving out some awesome free schwag so be sure to get there early. OMG Cup & Cakes will be there giving away custom 4sqDay cupcakes, too!
Fun Stuff: Live music from Christopher Alan Yates will be rocking the stage in the courtyard. SweetWater will also have free tours of the brewery available to guests and Scoutmob will have their photobooth at the event for mustache wearin’ photo ops. The Atlanta Cornhole League is going to have some boards set up for folks to play while they get their drink and eat on too!
Be sure to purchase those tickets in advance to get a free t-shirt! Even if you don’t plan on purchasing a ticket in advance, please RSVP for the event on Meetup so that we can get a good estimate on headcount for staffing at SweetWater.
EDIT: Advance tickets are now sold out. We have a lot of room so you can pay at the brewery (same fee of $10), but it will be cash only.
Big thank you to all of the sponsors, businesses that run foursquare specials, and most importantly all of the individuals who use the app. Collectively y’all make Atlanta one of the best foursquare communities in the world.
